The thing about having a little work done on your face is that the last thing you want is for people to know that you’ve had work done! All you really want out of a beauty treatment is a subtle enhancement to your look. But many treatments, including facelifts and other surgical procedures, can alter your face to the point where you don’t even look like yourself anymore. However, there is one beauty treatment that can give you that subtle improvement you want without having to transform your whole face: Dermal fillers!
Gone are the days when your only option was a facelift. Dermal fillers can be used to treat a wide variety of different skin concerns and issues, including eliminating lines and wrinkles, restoring lost facial volume, and plumping up thin lips. Below, we will walk through two of our most popular filler options to give you an idea of which one might be able to help you achieve the subtle enhancement you’re looking for.
Juvederm® is one of the most popular and powerful facial fillers available today. That is because it is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance our bodies naturally produces and which helps skin retain moisture and structure. Juvederm®: Ultra can be used to add facial volume, smooth out wrinkles, and even plump up your lips. Your results from Juvederm® will last around one year.
Radiesse® is a filler that uses calcium hydroxylapatite, which is an ingredient that stimulates the production of collagen in your skin and also remains suspended in a gel-like state that increases facial volume. Radiesse® is a great choice for those who want to treat the nasolabial folds around their mouths and other deeper types of wrinkles. It can also be used to fill out sunken cheeks.
If you’re still not sure which filler is right for you or which one will be best for your needs, we encourage you to reach out and make an appointment with Radiant Skin Dermatology and Laser.
